(MIAMI, FL) – All hands were on deck recently as Country Club of Miami residents grabbed rakes, shovels and other cleaning tools to spruce up their neighborhood. Led by Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan, residents tackled unwanted shrubbery along Bob-o-link Drive from Miami Gardens Drive to Royal Melbourne Drive.

“When you care about your neighborhood, you will do what it takes to keep the property values up,”  Commissioner Jordan said. “Clearly, the Country Club of Miami community is conscience about the appearance of their surroundings and take pride in their homes.”

The clean-up was initiated by the homeowner associations in Country Club of Miami and supported by Commissioner Jordan, the local Boy Scout troop and the Greater Miami Service Corps. Neighbors devoted two Saturdays to the project, recruiting volunteers by knocking on doors, passing out flyers and asking residents to help out.
